At the Heart of Our Soul
In Music we learn that Music is the art of sound.
Music in EYFS is through singing, rhythm and rhyme, and through continuous provision activities which include musical instruments and pots and pans! Music lessons from Year 1 to 6 follow the Charanga scheme of learning. This provides opportunities for singing and playing the xylophone and/or recorder to a wide range of songs from different cultures, artists and genres. Children are given opportunities to compose, improvise and refine their own musical compositions, performing these to the wider school. Throughout these lessons children are taught about the elements of music such as pitch and rhythm, musical history, harmony, melody and notation.
